Frankly, most Scots guys I know don't give one shiat about America, about the same as America gives about their land.

I don't like America very much, but then, I lived in Nebraska for a decade. That'll shiat on any good feeling that could possibly exist.

Well then, please do America a favor and drop dead. Thank You.

ciberido: Outside the USA, there are a couple of Asian countries (Thailand for one) that drink tea cold, and that's about it. Most of the world drinks tea hot and doesn't even conceive of drinking tea with ice. It's very hard to get ice tea most countries.

Ice tea and cornbread are the two things I miss most when I'm outside the USA.

Well, we are somewhat odd in that we are the only mammals that continue to drink it into adulthood.

ciberido: jpo2269: He left off the list "work" and "enjoy iced tea."

The only way I can get iced tea when I visit the UK is to order hot tea and a glass or two of ice.Drives me nuts that you cannot even find iced tea at the bigger hotels....  That being said, it does give me an excuse to splurge on Lucazade which can no longer be imported into the US....

Checked into the hotel, got my key and slogged myself to the elevator and some other guy got in too.

bingethinker: Githerax: Um, every mammal drinks milk as a child.  Straight milk.  How is it odd to continue drinking milk throughout life?

I think the important part is this: as a child. Adult mammals don't drink milk. I drank gallons of milk when I was growing up, but I can no longer digest it. It does disgusting things to my intestines.


The "can no longer digest it" thing doesn't apply to everyone. After many years of evolution, a lot of adult humans can, and lactose intolerance is the exception, not the norm, for virtually everyone of northern European ancestry.

Oh, and a lot of other adult mammals are more than happy to drink milk straight given a chance- give your cat a saucer of milk or cream sometime, see how that ends. Typically, you'll get a delighted cat who'll immediately start expecting some every night. The old trope isn't wrong there.

Popular Opinion: Greylight: OUTRAGE!!!  A good English breakfast with three kinds of meat, at a minimum, takes more than one person to prepare. It's one of the few, very few, culinary gifts from the British Isles and shouldn't be disparaged if only because it involves bacon..

if they added hash browns, they'd have a winner.
without potatoes (hash, cottage, obrien or potato pancakes....) breakfast sucks.
f*uck adkins.


You might enjoy Ireland. A traditional Irish breakfast includes:

Hash Browns
A Thick Slab of Bacon
Sausage
Roasted Tomatoes (actually really good)
Black and White Pudding (Which is really just sausage made from who knows whats)
Toast or Soda Bread, maybe a muffin
Eggs
Baked Beans.

It's something you get at a hotel or order at a restaurant, not something you actually make at home, so when you order one, you really do get most, if not all of that on your plate.

Mojongo: RINO: If fries are "chips", then what do you call actual chips? Also, why is the English muffin not a muffin?
 As I recall potato chips were called "crisps",  trucks are lorries, car trunks and hoods are boots and bonnets, wrenches are spanners, bathroom is the loo, Sanford and Son were originally Steptoe and Son, and the name "English" muffin was coined by the colonists. My father told a story about being an American soldier in England waiting for the D-Day invasion. He got in a poker game with some Brits and the betting got intense. Being new to their currency he wasn't sure how much to raise 2 Pounds 10 bob with so he pushed a stack of money in the pot and said, " I'll see your pounds, and raise you a ton."


That is an awesome anecdote.

Maggie_Luna: I hate milk. It always tasted like ass. I think it very 'white' to drink milk for some reason.


IIRC lactose intolerance in adults is far less common in white people than in the rest of the world. That being said, I myself am what is known as fish-belly white and don't have any adults in my family who will drink a glass of the stuff. Unless it's chocolate milk, but then they're all absolute chocolate maniacs who I could probably get to taste poo if they had a head cold and I claimed it was almond whip.

SirEattonHogg: 3) The term "middle class", which means apparently means upper class minus the aristocracy.  It was weird hearing my British colleagues saying stuff like "Oh his family is quite posh.  Very middle class."  I guess we all aspire to be middle class.


I don't understand the American concept of middle class, which as near as I can tell includes anyone who is neither impoverished nor a plutocrat. It's so broad as to lose all meaning. What is even more bizarre to my ears is the tendency of American politicians to talk about "ordinary middle class Americans." Again, very odd. Middle class isn't ordinary.

Now, getting to what you're talking about, that isn't quite it either. That would be the upper middle class, which is an entirely different beast. I'm middle class and while some might find me posh, I'm far from wealthy and even though I have lived in a very posh, upper middle class/upper class neighbourhood I never fit in at all.

It's difficult to explain exactly what defines (to the British) middle class. I heard someone on the radio suggest that if you had a library card while you were a child, you were middle class. My own personal definition is that if you were raised with the understanding that you were definitely going to university, you are middle class.

I think Americans use collar colours to define the same thing. Blue collar = working class, white collar = middle class. But I may be mistaken about this. I've lived for a long time in both countries but still don't quite understand American culture.

Oh, and while I'm on the subject, the whooping is incredibly annoying and the fake smiles and forced friendliness is insulting and creepy. Because it isn't real. I don't mind a chat, but I do mind the dishonesty.

r1niceboy: I do realise that parts of the US do have a fairly gleeful attitude towards incest, which is rare in Britain.


Well Chompers to be fair our countries have very different definitions of "incest".

Here it's unacceptable to knowingly have relations with any family member no matter how distant the relation.  In your country anything beyond 1st cousin is considered perfectly acceptable.

F'ing disgusting.

9. Taking home leftovers
Thanks to the previous point, doggy bags have long been part of American restaurant culture. I can't quite bring myself to make off with my unfinished fare. It feels... icky. Plus, I've usually overeaten, and I'm convinced I'll never want to look at food again. Naturally, I regret this decision in the morning.
10. Eating breakfast together
You know in films featuring perfect American families there's always a scene where an implausibly jolly parent makes the kids pancakes in the shape of dinosaurs, then the entire household sits down to a sumptuous spread. Well, I am reliably informed that this kind of thing actually happens here. Breakfast is something Brits have if they're hung over or if the hotel they're staying in provides it. We'd never be so eccentric as to sit down and eat it at the same time - and in the same location - as our loved ones.



Wow...I've never been this proud to be non-British.....amazing.....what a moron.....

hubiestubert: Dear Britain,

Over 200 years ago, we threw you and yours to the curb. While we appreciate that our Neighbors to the North still hold y'all in high esteem, and they ARE a very polite people, we likewise, did so for a reason. In that time, we have managed not only to have American Standard English outstrip British Standard English as the language of business abroad, and our financial as well as our industrial capacity outstrip your own by several factors, and even came to y'all's rescue a few times, out of the kindness of our Yank hearts. Well, that and blistering economic opportunities, and personal satisfaction of pulling your bacon out of the fire. In that time, we've managed to pull together a fairly bellicose and belligerent bunch of ex-pats, immigrants, and natives together into a union, with a fair varied experience than your Isles managed to bring. We brought over Scots and Irish, your own kin and kith, the French, the Spanish, even some disenfranchised Mexicans, Cubans, and a few other Latinates including some Italians and even the Portuguese, and in the meantime some Nihonjin, Chinese, some of those Pakis that you REALLY seem down on, some of the Indians that you are still trying to come to terms with, along with our own native population, and knitted them into the fabric of our society. It hasn't been seamless, it has had hiccups, as the imported African labor that you so lovingly helped us with, and then abandoned in your own shores, because, let's face it, you just didn't really seem to have time for all that, since you could just import the tobacco and cotton that we produced anyway, and wash your hands of the human cost that you brought with the whole shebang, and let us figure out what to do with the results of your experiment.

You are surprised that we AREN'T something different than yourselves? We ARE separated by a shared language--one that we've seen fit to modify, since we developed manners that you find curious and oddly embracing and at the sa ...

Drinking milk. It's a conspiracy.

Industry has a lot of milk left over after extracting the cream to make butter, cheese and ice cream so they taught Americans to drink milk. Actually, they started out by teaching old timey Americans to drink whey (or "butter milk", a contradiction in terms) because otherwise they'd have to dump it into the river, destroying the water supply and killing the fish. But over time they figured out how to make whey look like "milk" by adding chalk and other additives, so they were able to replace the filthy and ridiculous habit of drinking whey with the even stupider habit of drinking chalk water fortified with zero vitamins.

Nowadays, even this has given way to the realization that you don't have to add chalk. The only place where chalk water is still sold as milk is China, which like XIXth century America is rapidly industrializing and full of crooks who don't care if your children die.

Americans drink milk because they have been brainwashed for centuries by entrepreneurs and corporations. There's a lot less moxy and go-ahead spirit in British capitalism, so 1) they spend a fraction of the money American companies and their government proxies spend on advertising and marketing, and 2) the British public is woeful unaware of the existence of products that they don't need. Like milk, dental floss, kitchens, and doggy bags.

And that's the reason for that.

UberDave: He forgot eating chips (fries) by hand.  I usually look out for local customs like that but one evening I was tired and jet lagged and drew some amused looks from a couple's two children.


Although Americanization has made great inroads, I recall a newspaper article from the local paper (The Ottawa Citizen) in which visitors and members of the diplomatic community commented on things which they noticed about local life that struck them as original and different. A visitor from the Caribbean found it heart-warmingly nostalgic that Canadian mailboxes are Royal Red (or Scarlet) rather than blue as in the US. This made them feel more at home. An American pre-teen noted that many Canadians eat french fries with a fork (and sometimes a knife if the fries are long) in restaurants or at home (McDo and other fast food places that don't provide forks for your fries are natural exceptions--everybody tends to eat their fries with their fingers in American fast food chains). Also, Canadians put gravy on fries (and make poutine with gravy and cheese curds) instead of ketchup, or with ketchup even.

The question of finger foods is one which divides nations and regions, even families. Also, french fries seem to be a cultural touchstone, or shibboleth if you will, as they may be eaten with salt and malt vinegar (UK, Canada), with ketchup (USA, Canada) or with mayonaise (Belgium, France, the American South, possibly Quebec).

Speaking of culture, Americans tend to use the word in the German sense of High Culture (Kultur), while Canadians tend to use it in the anthropological sense (the habits and manners of nations). This is why a hockey game or Tim Hortons are considered Canadian Culture, but in America are seldom considered at all even where they exist and are popular.

When I was a student in Switzerland, we went on a number of free field trips paid for by the Swiss government. Like many people I liked to look out the window, observing the changes in landscape, building traditions, etc. The Americans, from well-to-do families, generally read their newspapers (International Herald) or chatted. Getting from place to place for them was just a pragmatic question of going from point A to point B, while for many other people the trip was half the fun. This may be a class rather than a national custom, but I suspect it is both.

The upper middle or upper class American students were object-oriented, pragmatic, blassé about ordinary life in other countries, individualistic. But the rest of us were interested in what was around us.

I imagine that the cellphone and other "communication" gadgets have now replaced the newspaper as a form of communication prevention for the Anglo-American elites. Americans and the British have different ways of being "private" and stand-offish.

An American will tell you his or her entire life story (including gruesome details such as medical procedures) in a few minutes, secure in the knowledge that they will never see you again. They'll be on a first name basis in seconds, but if you try to contact them later, you will realize that you don't know their last name and can't look up their telephone number or other "coordinates" because you don't know them well enough to be on a last name basis.

Unless you are a born geographer, historian or anthropologist, you might misunderstand Americans and think they are open books. They are just working on different assumptions. They can maintain just as much standoffishness as the British upper classes while being extremely polite, open, frank and intrusively forth-coming with details of their income, profession or trade, etc.

They use the "bury 'em with facts" method instead of the "need to know" method of keeping distance between themselves and strangers.

Americans come by this naturally because the vast majority of you/them are at least partly Irish, German, Italian, Jewish, etc. Canadians are more likely to be British, or French, or Other, or various recent combinations of these, and thus are more "European" than European Americans. They've had less time to hybridize and develop a common culture like the American culture, which being founded on individualism, anti-intellectualism, anti-elitism, and anti-statism, is more monolithic and obligatory than the cultures of less free societies. Also, as everybody knows, America is supposedly a melting pot, while Canada is more of a mosaic or possibly a buffet, where the different items blend on your plate, not in the kitchen.

Paradoxical yes, but everything human is a paradox.
